February’s internationals: Which Reds play when?

BRAZIL 

Geyse is set to be away the longest of the Reds’ internationals, as our no.23 is part of Brazil’s squad for the CONCACAF W Gold Cup, which runs until 10 March. Her absence will largely depend on how far the South Americans progress, with their last of three group games in the early hours of 28 February. 

Jayde Riviere was due to join up with Canada for the tournament, but was forced to withdraw after picking up a knock in our win over Brighton at the start of the month.

ENGLAND 

Five of our players have been called up to the Lionesses squad, with Mary Earps, Maya Le Tissier and Ella Toone earning a spot in Sarina Wiegman’s squad again. Millie Turner was a late addition, replacing Arsenal’s Leah Williamson who was forced to withdraw through injury. 

As mentioned above, Clinton has also been selected to feature once more, having flourished in her spell at Spurs this term.

NORWAY 

Reds midfielder Lisa Naalsund has been rewarded for her fine form of late by the Norwegian national team, having been picked for their UEFA Nations League double-header against Croatia.

Polly Bancroft to leave United for CEO role

As well as supporting head coach Marc Skinner and his staff, Bancroft helped deliver major improvements in infrastructure for the women’s team, including a new elite training facility at Carrington.

Growth in the support base and revenues for the women’s team has been another achievement, with consistently rising attendances for games at Leigh Sports Village and over 150,000 tickets sold for WSL games at Old Trafford.

Bancroft will continue in her role for the remainder of the season while a search takes place for her successor. We wish Polly all the best in the next stage of her career.
